The Tigers will take an 8-1 record into the Division 5 state playoffs Friday night. HG, a No. 3 seed, will play at home against No. 6-seeded Valders in a first-round game at 7 p.m.

Laconia dropped to 5-4 and will play at Southern Door (Brussels) in a D-5 playoff opener Friday at 7 p.m.

Senior quarterback Isaac Dirker fired two touchdown passes to senior tight end Eric Reinemann which sparked the Tigers’ attack. Reinemann had a 60-yard TD catch in the first quarter and an 11-yard scoring reception in the fourth.

Reinemann’s TD came with about seven minutes left and following Derek Stauss’s PAT gave HG a 14-6 lead. Mason Valenstein’s 20-yard reception from Dierker on third down helped key the scoring drive.

Reinemann led in receiving yardage with 71.

“We played a great overall football game against a high quality opponent in Laconia,” said Tiger head coach David Schmid.

“Our offense kept them off balance with our running and passing attack. Eric Rienemann had two big touchdown catches on great throws from Dirker.

“Our defense continues to play lights out and Nic Koenig [junior defensive back] had one of the most athletic interceptions I have seen at the high school level to end their second-to-last drive,” said Schmid.
